Alcohol services cuts undermine BDR: Higgins
Time to stop being politically correct and DO SOMETHING.
These problem drinkers need help now.

Tax a percentage from those outlets selling grog and use the funds to build one large rehab centre.
Every client then must complete a Cert IV AOD course and then after that, release them to do community service. If they fail then send them back in to rehab.
If their education levels aren’t good enough for the course, then they must work through numeracy and literacy plus foundation skills to get them confident enough to complete the Cert IV.
